Muscle tissue is a key factor in weight maintenance and metabolism. I'm a huge fan of fitting in any kind of movement or exercise wherever you can, so even although the amount of weight is quite small, the resistance created by one pound on each leg is a nice addition to your normal workout. I wouldn't strap these babies on and expect to magically become buff or drop 10 lbs. over night, but I like the idea that I'm doing something while carrying on with my normal routine.
You can actually buy different pattern fabric covers and switch it up a bit. I love my Banglz but there is one thing that I'd love to see: the 1 lb weight is a bit sissy for us athletic types. I'm a bit of an over achiever when it comes to working out and I could probably comfortably make it through my day with 3 lb weights on my ankles. So Banglz, PLEASE make us some heavier weights!
